Publisher Note

While living in Johannesburg, British photographer Jason Larkin was struck by the ever-present reality of people waiting. He was drawn to those who sought shelter from the harsh summer sun by positioning themselves in the shade. Here the features of individuals are obscured, leaving only the subtlety of posture and the details of place. Omitting any reference to the purpose or outcome of each wait, Larkin simply records, beside each image, the duration of the wait. Jason Larkin is internationally recognised for his long-term social documentary projects, environmental portraiture and landscape reportage. He lived in Johannesburg from 2011 to 2013. He is the author of Cairo Divided, After The Mines and Tales From The City Of Gold.
